I’ve been wanting this for so long. I’ve had my bouts with being depressed and I got through every day based solely on this perspective. I always wondered how I could keep making it to the next day. And it happened because of my friends and family and most importantly music. When I heard this song for the first time it really stuck with me. Sometimes that’s all it takes, focus on what you have and don’t let it beat you. Happiness is out there.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.
My newest tattoo and too date my biggest and most impressive. Its a memorial to my uncle who sadly passed away, as the film gives me fond memories of him.
The tattoo was done by Dave Martin at Madhouse Tattoo in Stanstead Abbots, Hertfordshire a very awesome guy and great artist.
My favorite princess! I love Ariel!
